Go To The Gym, Or Have One At Home?

A few days ago you may have seen a post I wrote about wanting to get back to the gym. I still do, but then the financial part of my brain kicks in, and asks me could it be a waste of money?

I already pay for Zumba, I do DDPYoga at home, I have a Total Gym in my 1_9basement that I use. Do I really need to pay for a gym membership as well? Could I just get away with purchasing gym equipment and creating my own home gym in my basement?

It’s options I need to weigh in on. How much could I save myself by shelling out money now, creating an investment and finding some wholesale gym equipment?

Would I use the equipment at home?

My answer, probably not. From what I’ve found out about myself, is if I have to go somewhere to workout or weigh in, I do a whole lot better sticking to my routine, to my goals. I don’t know what it is about being home, maybe I’m more comfortable, maybe I just find too many excuses and other things to do instead of working out. Especially in the basement, I can see the laundry that has to be done, I can see other housework that I need to do. Put off my workout to help the kids with something.

Excuse after Excuse is what I’ll find at home, so maybe a home gym isn’t for me. Is it for you? Where do you workout? Would you rather do it in the gym or at home with your own equipment?

    I think I do best going to the gym. They have classes, like Zumba, that are included in the membership. And I like the variety of equipment that THEY CARE FOR. I don’t have to pay for repairs. And I get motivated by other people working out and by the huge mirrors to admire myself. LOL.

    workout classes are the way to go for me, for sure. I get motivated by having others working out next to me. At home? Not so much.

    And zumba is my favorite, by far!

    This is always a mind struggle for me too. I have pretty much everything a person could want or need at home, from home gym equipment, mountain bike, snow shoes, xbox workout games, Beachbody dvd’s and more. So, I don’t need to go to a gym and the closest one to me is 40 minutes away. But, there are days I ask myself if I would keep in check more if I did go to a gym. Hmmmm

    I’ve found that I would rather work out at home, in fact I need to call tomorrow to see if I can cancel my membership yet.
